At one point during the concert, I realized something amazing was happening. The band was playing a song and then each musician kind of went off on their own track, doing completely different things musically but it all somehow fit together. I looked around to remark about it, to see if anyone else around me was hearing what I was hearing and noticed that everyone around me was... asleep!
Including my girlfriend. I nudged her and she woke up. I tried to communicate my experience, yelling in her ear as she came around to ask if she could hear what I was but she had to have been following it all along. So didn't understand. It was utterly mind expanding though, a completly amazing experience.
Being stage right just off the floor area, up above us there was a hung bank of speakers facing us just off and above the stage and... it was loud.
Directly below some women were dancing, spinning circles in loose long, tie dyed sun dresses. It was a magical moment and finally, I got it. I understood what it was about the Grateful Dead that was so amazing. These were talented musicians, to be sure. And it wasn't just the drugs. :) Okay I'm sure that had SOME thing to do with it, but they were still doing what they were doing and it was worth experiencing to be sure, especially since now in hindsight, Jerry is no longer with us.

Anyway, everybody is playing awesomely on this one. Check it out!
It made pleasant background music as I did some household cleaning, but I think if I was listening to this show simply for the pleasure of listening to a show, I would have been disappointed. I'm giving this one two stars only to balance out the 4-star rating here...it's really a 2.5 star show.
